While Zack Snyder is known for directing Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the forthcoming Justice League, many have overlooked his role as a producer for the growing DC Extended Universe with Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman. Snyder recently revealed that he managed to sneak an Alfred Hitchock-esque cameo into director Patty Jenkins’ woman-led superhero movie.
Snyder revealed a photo of his hidden appearance in the film on the social media service Vero. As it turns out, the guy who helped get the DCEU off the ground made an appearance in the background (appropriately enough) of the scene where Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor, and the others took a photograph in a recently-liberated village:
Snyder has previously made cameos in other productions he’s been involved with, such as the Dawn of the Dead remake, Watchmen, and even Batman v. Superman. What separates his Wonder Woman cameo from the others is that it’s the first cameo he’s made in a movie that he didn’t direct, and it might be possible that he could make a handful of cameos in the other movies he’ll be set to produce after Justice League, such as Aquaman.
Jenkins’ Wonder Woman is playing in theaters. Its cast includes Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, David Thewlis as Ares, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison, and Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff.
Snyder’s Justice League takes flight on November 17, 2017, with a cast that includes Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne (Batman), Henry Cavill as Kal-El/Clark Kent (Superman), Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller as Barry Allen (The Flash), Jason Mamoa as Orin/Arthur Curry (Aquaman), and Ray Fisher as Victor Stone (Cyborg).

6 Reasons Why ‘Justice League’ Could Be Better Than ‘Avengers’
The DC Cinematic Universe needs a win and Geoff Johns and Zack Snyder have their fingers crossed Wonder Woman and Justice League will give things a boost. Aquaman keeps adding members to the cast and is set to start shooting soon while Flash has already lost two directors, meaning there’s a lot riding on WB’s next two big DC movies to secure a future for their cinematic plans.
There’s a lot to look forward to in Justice League and quite a few reasons to believe it could match or surpass The Avengers. WB is introducing most of their supporting characters for the first time in Justice League opposed to how Marvel had already introduced every member of the team by the time they came together for The Avengers. That means we have a lot to watch for as we meet a lot of characters on the big-screen for the first time.
